Sword Fight

I haven’t let my apartment in days (with exception to a Starbucks run each day to keep me sane) because of all the work I have to do. So I’ve been watching movie after movie. Guess which one I watched today! Well you probably can’t. I watched Pirates of the Caribbean. The fight scenes are my favorite parts, so I took a couple hours off my thesis work to do a quick illustration. I didn’t take time to check for tiny mistakes or research clothing and rock formations, so it’s not perfect but it’s pretty good for a couple hours.

Christmas Eve

My friend, Chin, did a Photoshop painting demo for me yesterday. I hope I only get better with Photoshop from here. I was trying to imitate Chin’s painting process, just to give it a shot. Thanks Chin!

I was really excited to see my schoolmate and friend, Anthony, using pixel art for his junior animation, and I was impressed with his color palette and animation style. I’m glad he uploaded it on Vimeo.

Today’s Christmas Eve, so I hope everybody’s at home enjoying the holidays with their family and friends. Merry Christmas!

Thursday Night

Sketched this self portrait thing last night. I gave up pretty quickly when I figured I needed to get back into observational drawing. It’s been a while.

My classmate and fellow Gundam fan, Aaron, animated this. I’m posting this because it’s awesome, and I asked him how he made the fire/energy effect and I want to keep his answer in a safe place: my blog.

“I used Particles in After Effects to flow up and combined with a glow effect, vector blur, and light burst. I used a luma to make the center of the aura transparent (I made it so the beginning color from the center was white and keyed that out)”

Thanks Aaron!

Astronaut and the Orb of Light

Recently did some work on my astronaut. Note, I will probably be making some major changes to my plot. These may or may not show up in the final product, but they are still very nice and I will try my best to keep them in.

I’m trying to be more conscious about how I put my work up, hence the crazy name stamping. Sorry, I also think it’s kind of  funny.

Yoga Poses

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Drew a series of poses for my yoga final tomorrow. I tore ‘Table Pose’ out of my notebook because I didn’t think it counted as a pose. But the drawing is still cute! In some, I didn’t realize that I mixed up left and right and my directions didn’t follow my drawings, because I’m a silly fool. I’m also plagued with ugly handwriting.

Poor Piggy

Tonight, I drew this quick and dirty comic for my friend who is having bike troubles. Ha, I’m a pretty useless friend. All I can do is hug, give flowers, and draw pretty pictures.
